Preparing for the Season of SAD

The days are getting shorter, and the sunshine is not as bright.  Fall is here, and winter is quickly approaching – for SAD sufferers, that means it is time to ready our arsenals to combat the bleakness of the dark seasons.  SAD stands for “Seasonal Affective Disorder,” and it describes a depression or malaise that descends during the colder, darker months.  It is estimated that approximately 10 to 20 percent of the U.S. population experiences symptoms of SAD.  Women account for around 75% of sufferers.  Psychologists surmise that the phenomenon is caused by the change in sunlight, and is especially pronounced in parts of the country that get the least amount of sunlight during winter.

Were the Doors Locked?

Vehicle break-ins are nearly epidemic in some parts of Sacramento.  It is so common to see shattered glass next to a parked car that often vehicle owners will leave their doors unlocked with the hope that they can avoid a window repair bill.  What citizens may not be aware of is that currently, the law in California is that burglary only occurs when a thief enters a vehicle with locked doors.  A shattered window does not provide evidence that the vehicle’s doors were locked, and therefore the harsher charge of burglary may not apply.  This loophole may render law enforcement unable to charge thieves with anything other than vandalism or petty theft.  Senator Scott Wiener is attempting to close the “broken window burglary loophole.”

Headlight Problems Can Lead to a Serious Auto Accident

An auto accident can happen at any time, and researchers have recently found that headlight problems might be a contributing factor. When a driver is making their way through the streets of San Francisco, the streets are well-lit. This can cause some drivers to question the need for their headlights at all. One the other hand, when people reach the suburbs and rural areas, they will quickly realize just how dangerous the darkness can be. Headlight problems on these roads can significantly increase the risk of an auto accident.
